" In a short prelude to his r
TOon Sunday night Mr.-Reynolds
. spoke as follows concerning the
question of military ' prepared
ness: "At time, when men's
blood is pulsing thru their veins
at war heat, it is welt for, ua -to
think only and seriously concern
ing the great national questions
thit are presented to-m and par
ticularly of the one question that
is agitating this country just at
present 1 refer to military pre
paredness. In this " question
there are two extremes the one
extreme being that we shall have
an army like Gernvny and a
navy like Great Britain's and
the other being that we shall
, have no array or navy other than
just enough to keep ourselves
straight With the man who
Bays that our army and navy
should be the largest in the world
we have no sympathy, for are
we not now viewing with, horror
tho hnrm-fil ont come such a
noliev of nreDaredness in blood
bespattered, tear-stained Europe,
"With the man who says dis
armament we can agree when
such a disarmament includes al
the nations. But until sin shall
' ease to have such a hold upon
the people and sin is really at
the foundation-of all demands
for armament-just so long will
nations distrust one another's
motives and : remain armed.
--Our worthy president offers a
program of preparedness where
by he nope to conciliate the two
extremes" and the same time
. -walk on safe ground. President
Wilson would work for an army
( adequate only for legitimate
peaceful uses, but supplemented
by such a large body of citizens
trained to arms as would be pro
Tided for by the Garrison Con-
tinental Army plan. .' As for the
navy he believes that alt that
will be necessary will be to
''hasten the pace in the policy
" we have long been pursuing''
Af Ur Wilson's olan is a
welling chorus of approval from
the newspapers ot the land. AwkZi
few say it is too mild and others poiaoned f rom the takttat to
that ir tends to militarism.
These plana could undoubtedly
. be carried out without their in
tention being misconstrued by
nr mtinn. But for no' other
nation would such a program be
possible without arousing the
suspicions of the nations. ll:e
United States however, has set
a precedent in the Mexican situa
tion that has given to the world
a guarantee that such an, arma
ment will be used only for peace
purposes. Most people can agree
with President Wilson's plan.
But after all. is said this ques
tion still remains unanswered.
"Whv ahmild we Drenare for
war?" It isn't that we should
hone to outdo any other nation.
They have the sam privilege, of
increase that we have. Is it be
cause we fear England, our own
bkiod relative? Yet the mi
of England bars always been
Iriendlr altho we have had to
rulers. Do we fear Germany?
That cannot be so for it is, not
yet made manifest what Ger
many will be able to do whether
she is defeated- r victorious in
the present conflict Father
more Germany is not showing
any antagonism toward us, and
we wonder what she would have
tQ gain by conquering ua when
her people can come here without
shedding one drop of blood. Is
it that bugbear Japan, which
the military men have used an
nually to frighten Congress into
donating more money for their
purposes.-' Japan, who has look
to us for fatherly counsel, with
whose development we' have
had such a ; share. We are
spending for military prepared
ness ..about 250 million dollars,
much of which goes Bto the
"pork barrel, "in order to buy
men to perform their patriotic
duty. Were the men who handle
this vast sum for Uncle Sam
possessed of a small spark of the
patriotism about which they
howl there would be no need for
a hastening of our past military
program. This sum would suffice
to give adequate defense- to the
couqjry, which, after all is just
what President Wilson is work
ing for. . . u . : ..

The lone High School football
team won their second game
from the Echo High School foot
ball team last Friday morning
when they defeated Echo 7-0.
This game was to have been
played Thanksgiving day, but
was postponed until Friday be
cause the Echo team did not ar
rive in tinsa-Thursday to play.
It was a bard fight from the
very start and not until the
fourth quarter did lone succeed
in scoring. In the first quarter
Echo started the game by kick
ing off to lone and carried the
bail within a yard of their goal
in yery short order, but lone
braced up and held them to a
scoreless game. On several oc
casions the Echo lads fumbled
the ball and once in the " first
quarter Ray Sparry of lone se
cured the ball. In the second
quarter the linemen were -called
out in the field twice to settle
disputes to see if Echo had made
their yardage. No points were
made in the first second or third
quarters, but in the middle of
the fourth after Roy Blake put
on the helmeet in place of Rusty
Cochran who was nearly swk,
lone made their touchdown.
Earl Blake carried the ball over
tbearat rime but in doing so
stepped ont of the tines and was
called back. A center rush by
lone with Roy Blake carrying
the ball. resulted in a touchdown
and Made Blake kicked goal for
the seventh score.' Pete Arthurs
relieved Chaa. Pennington in the
third quarter. This is the last
game that lone plays with Echo
this year. Not a very large
crowd attended the game owing
tn the fact that it was played in
morning; and the weathr was
disagreable. ; ;Z fL.
